Elastic Drums IAP sale – bargain price for add-on kits in Oliver Greschke’s brilliant iOS drum app

If you are a regular visitor to the Music App Blog you might well be familiar with Elastic Drums from developer Oliver Greschke and Mouse On Mars. As I mentioned just back in February, the app recently underwent a significant update to v.2.0.  Having added support for using drum samples (via an IAP) in v.1.9, v.2.0 added Ableton Live Set Export features, re-vamped the sample import process and made further sample-based kits available via the in-app store. Anyway, Oliver was in touch … [Read more...]

fluXpad update – MoMinstruments add some tweaks to their left-field take on a sample-based sequencer

I posted a full review of fluXpad when it was first released and it is perhaps most easily summarised as a sample-based sequencing environment. Of course, at it is from the Mouse On Mars team, fluXpad does come with a typical MoM twist; you  'draw' your pattern sequences for each sound. Multiple patterns (clips?) can be sequenced within a single project and these then triggers to create a full performance. As shown in the screenshots, given the 'drawing' element, the UI can look a little like a … [Read more...]

fluXpad update – MoMinstruments open shop in their left-field take on a sample-based sequencer

I posted a review of WretchUp from the Mouse On Mars development some time ago on the blog but the team have more recently released fluXpad which the MoM team describe as a sample-based sequencer.

fluXpad sale – MoMinstruments take 25% off their left-field take on a sample-based sequencer

I posted a review of WretchUp from the Mouse On Mars development some time ago on the blog. WretchUp is most certainly a bit of a wild ride as an audio processor but, if you like to mangle audio in all sorts of unpredictable ways, and particularly if you like to do that in a performance context, then this is an app that might well appeal. The MoMinstruments team includes Oliver Greschke (of Elastic Drums fame) but, given WretchUp's pedigree, I think we should expect anything under the MoM … [Read more...]
